Oklahoma is one of the largest and most tree-like of Cercis varieties, with the potential to reach 4m-6m or more in the longer term, and a similar spread.
In spring it features long-lasting dark lilac-coloured blossom on bare branches.
The large bright green heart-shaped leaves follow, tinged with pink.
In autumn the leaves turn yellow, sometimes with orange or red tints.

When grown in the UK it is best to plant this Cercis in a sheltered spot in full sun - it likes sunlight and warmth, and will then reward you with the best autumn foliage colours.
The species Cercis canadensis is the state tree of Oklahoma. Some authorities place the south-western Redbuds from Texas, Oklahoma and New Mexico in a separate species Cercis reniformis. The differences are minor, although the Oklahoma variety has a reputation for drought and heat tolerance.
This particular variety, Oklahoma, was discovered in 1964 growing in the Arbuckle Mountains of Oklahoma (between Oklahoma City and the border with Texas).
